The new bridge (ensuring vehicular-, pedestrian- and bicycle traffic as well) will be built West of the two cities, about 200 m from the current railway bridge.The carrying capacity allows the passage of heavy vehicles, which can significantly contribute to the further development of the region. The traffic of the downtowns will be relieved, as well as that of the Elizabeth Bridge, connecting Komárom and Révkomárom.
